Library Lines: 6 June 2017

It’s winter now, with shorter days and longer nights, and plummeting temperatures – an excellent time to join the library and snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book!

Happily, the library can help with the good book part of that program, as we usually add over 200 new books to the shelves each month!

Amongst the new books added to the collection this week The operator by Robert O’Neill. O’Neill’s biography: the Seal Team Operative and the mission that changed the world. Miss Lily’s lovely ladies by Jackie French, a tale of espionage, love and passionate heroism. Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey one of the top ten books you must read before you die, now a major motion picture.

Talking books added to the collection: The book thief by Markus Zusak; The dressmaker by Rosalie Ham; To kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee.

The library is not only a place in which to borrow books. Young and old alike can join a group of like- minded people who meet in the library. The Family History group meets every 2nd Wednesday and 4th Friday of the month, at 10.30, to research family and local history. If you’re interested in tracing your family tree or finding out some local history, come along to the meeting; the group can give you some handy hints to start your search.

Youngsters who would like to be challenged can join the after school Junior Brain Games which still has a few places available. Starting at 3.30 each Wednesday, children listen to stories and discuss the books, then participate in activities such as join the dots, find the objects, and word games. The hour long sessions finishes with a handicraft segment.
